Here’s what I think the Moxie Squad will want for Christmas and will want to buy for their friends and family!
LUXE AND LOVELY
Let’s start with some of my favorites from Stella and Dot! Their COVET collection is delicate and decadent. Initial letters and darling icons (Hey, PiPhi sisters, they have a pave diamond ARROW!!!!) make these lovely gifts alone or in multiples.
Stella and Dot also has some spectacular clutches for all your holiday occasions. They are so reasonable and really unique. From TAJ (check HERE to see her), to the Mermaid skin foldover bag shown below, they have a bag for date night and holiday parties and all budget-friendly.
A crisp chill is in the air, but not every outfit or occasion is meant for a full coat, am I right? Carlisle Collection has some gorgeous ponchos, scarves and accessories for the stylish woman that are truly LUXE. Fur pom poms and cashmere knits let her know how special and stylish you think she is.
At the holidays, DO NOT overlook your hair! I found these beautiful swarovski bobby pins from Silt Design studio. Perfect for any fashion-forward girl or woman…
I’ve you’ve spent any kind of time around Moxie Mama, you’ve learned that I am OBSESSED with Wonder Woman! From my childhood with Lynda Carter to the reboot with Gal Gadot, I dream of possessing super powers.
That said, who doesn’t want the Amazonian’s wrist cuffs, right? And even better, I got to NAME this bracelet from local Pittsburgh designer, Sandra Cadavid! Check out the star-studded Wonder Woman cuff below:
What if you didn’t even NEED the Wonder Woman mojo? What if you felt totally empowered even on a casual day. Raising a strong daughter? Have a son who supports women’s rights? This grouping of tees from Cotton Bureau (another local business I just love!) is all about girl power and feminism.
For the woman who maybe hasn’t been feeling her strongest, or perhaps someone who has plans for a really bada$$ 2018, this book is a fantastic guide to channeling your own inner strength.
Health and Beauty
At my age, I am compulsive about skin care. As an ambassador for Vu Skin System, I love their eye cream (I’ve talked about it a TON because it’s unique that it can be worn on the upper lid also). My eyes look fresh and rested night and day, and the price of this item makes it a no-brainer for the stocking.
This next item is a fabulous gift for yourself or others. Seems odd to put oil on your face, right? But the Overnight Facial from EVER is EVERYTHING!!!! It’s the perfect boost for my daily regimen when the heater goes on. Click HERE to get a code for $10 off your first order, then click through the photo below to buy! You, or your loved one, will not regret it! Your skin will feel extra boosted.
And makeup makeup makeup!!!!
My friend Joy introduced me to these amazing palettes from Younique! Joy is a delight to watch on makeup tutorials in her VIP group (HERE)
But she has these stupid amazing eye shadow palettes also that I LOVE for holiday and though the winter. Joy shares an OCD level obsession with eyebrows, so I trust her with eye makeup also (please note: I have literally ONLY two people IN THE WORLD I trust with makeup besides myself. This is a super big deal). Take a look at the Unique eye shadow palettes as a fabulous gift item here:
Don’t let the name of this category fool you, I may have saved the best for last. These are amazing hostess gifts and things that have super universal appeal.
I have Rewined candles all over from fall through the holidays. I start the autumn with Spiced Cider
Then round out the holidays with “Wine Under the Tree” (click the photo for details). These make a fantastic and decadent hostess gift, or something to TREAT YO SELF with.
Who remembers the Summer Bucket List? What if you could plan in December for your epic summer adventure? These popsicle-stick-bucket-list-challenges are a super family gift (maybe even if you do the pickle ornament on your tree, this could be the prize????) This is the Pittsburgh Version below.
And last, but absolutely NOT least…..
MY BAG BELT
Ladies, HOW many times has your purse gone FLYING when you hit the brakes in the car??? My dear friend Kristine has SOLVED OUR PROBLEMS!!!!
This is NOT a drill, people! We all know the pain of having a grocery bag, purse, whatever–spill out everywhere. I know it seems basic, but I am OBSESSED with this simple tool that keeps me organized in my car! Kristine has decided to give the Moxie Squad 10% off so make sure you use your code!
Well, I hope you find something fun and different from my first ever gift guide! Don’t forget that I do offer personal style sessions and personal shopping as well (with gift cards for use at a future date)!
HAPPIEST OF HOLIDAYS!
